I grew up in Malaysia.....Regardless of the weather, our dinner time was at 7:00 PM and bed time was 9:30 PM

Eating out at a restaurant was never a huge deal, that only really happened when it was a birthday or a very special occasion.

There was no such thing as Fast food on every other day, and having a bottle of Coke or A&W was a real treat.

You took your school clothes off as soon as you got home and put on your ‘home’ clothes. There was no taking or picking you up in the car, you either boarded the school bus or rode your bicycle! You got home did your chores and your homework before dinner.

Our house phone had a cord attached and it was orange with a dial so there was no such things as private conversations!

We didn’t have Youtube, or Netflix, we had only RTM 1, 2 and TV3 to watch.

We played Badminton at the side of road , Bottle Caps , picture cards, football and any other game we could come up with.....

We played music via tapes which has Side A and Side B

We went to the local shop for grocery and nano nano or pop ice or Walls paddle pop ice cream

We ate what Mum made for dinner or we ate nothing at all and if we didn’t eat our vegetables there was never desserts

We drank from the tap and never complained of stomachache.

We weren't AFRAID OF ANYTHING. We played till dark... sunset was our alarm.

If someone had a fight, that's what it was and we were friends again a week later, if not SOONER.

We watched our MOUTHS around our elders because ALL of our aunts, uncles, grandpas, grandmas, AND our parents' best friends were all extensions of our PARENTS and you didn't want them telling your parents if you misbehaved! Or they would give you something to cry about.

We respected the Police, Firemen, Ambulance workers, Teachers, Doctors and Nurses.

We never answered back..... ever !!

We got detention at school for not doing homework, being late to class or being naughty.

Those were the good days. So many kids today will never know how it feels to be a real kid 😁 I loved my childhood and all the Friends I hung around with. Good Times 🤓😘

Comment YES if you are from the same Generation.... 🙂 I definitely am....
